If you're looking for Cardwell boat hire, the closest place to hire a boat from is Lucinda, 60km away & the southern gateway to the Hinchinbrook Channel.
If you're in Cardwell & looking at a half day or full day boat hire, the easiest way to hire a boat, is to drive the 60km to Lucinda, and head out from the boat ramp in Lucinda, then drive home back to your accommodation in Cardwell.
Boat hire options from Lucinda include tow & go, as well as pontoon service with walk on, walk off. Multiday options are available, with multiday boat hire discounts.
You're more than welcome to tow the hire boat from Lucinda, and head out from Cardwell. This option is best suited to multiday tow & go hire. The main thing to consider when heading out from Cardwell, is access in and out of the boat ramp. As the area is privately owned and in receivership, maintenance has not occurred in the marina. Work on requiring at least a 1.4m minimum tide with your planning. Possibly more on the dropping tide.
If you're hiring a boat and staying in Cardwell, you could also utilise the Fishers Creek boat ramp, to get you smack in the middle of the Hinchinbrook Channel's mangrove country. This is a great little bush ramp, however, you should still work on 1.4m tide for access.
